“I tell you what John, if you dig and dig and keep on digging, what is it you even think you’re going to find?!”

A film installation tracing the currents of desire lurking under the surface of everyday activities. In a playful reimagining of detectorists' YouTube uploads, the films probes into the subconscious of a middle aged hobbyist metal detectorist John, to explore the dark and squelchy crevasse of desire.
